Silent Digital Video: Southbound Norfolk Southern Railroad transfer train at Hawthorne Junction. Chicago / Cicero Illinois USA. Early April 2007.
I photographed this silent digital video after work one overcast afternoon, in early April of 2007. We are at the Chicago city limits, alongside the border of west suburban Cicero Illinois. A slow moving southbound Norfolk Southern Railroad heavy transfer freight train, is viewed traveling over the Belt Railway of Chicago tracks enroute to Clearing Yard in southwest suburban Bedford Park Illinois. The train is passing through the Canadian National ex Illinois Central crosstracks at Hawthorne Junction.
